The Special Mechanic (also known as: Mechanic Jr.)
with only 2 layers is the smallest knife Victorinox has manufactured to include Pliers
. The name is not very official, as this model was produced in quantity for Radio Shack stores and marketed under their Techline brand of tools. The knife may have also been produced for promotions, but it is pretty clear at this time that it was never produced as a regular line item.
Black Cellidor plus-scales, Victorinox shield printed on bottom scale, Techline silver inlay on top scale. Plus scales may not have included the straight-pin but the hole/slot was present for one. Much less common are Red scales with the metal "Techline" inlay, which have no slot for the straight-pin.
